Comment 11 for bug 413168

I think multiple bugs are getting mixed together.
See bug 397839.

According to Bryce at that bug report, xorg has been properly patched
with both patches that Richard Hughes requests.

gnome-power-manager is at a version where its fix is included.

So xorg says the bug is invalid since they have the patches and
gnome-power-manager says the bug in in xorg.

From the number of reports that are coming in on both bugs, it appears
that the reality is that DPMS and blanking problems do remain.

> Upon upgrade from ibex->jaunty->karmic yesterday, I'm finding gnome-power-manager is shutting off the display after the timed interval as it used to.  I have tried a recursive-unset on gpm and resetting the timeout value to no benefit.  Launching gpm in verbose shows nothing before/after the timeout period.  Possibly relate is the screensaver is also not coming on after the set interval, so possibly something is preventing both from becoming "idle".
